Tentative dates scheduled for the WWE’s next draft

POST Wrestling can confirm that the WWE is planning another draft with tentative dates set for October after SmackDown moves to Fox.

Last week, it was reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the WWE was in the process of planning another draft to create distinct rosters for Raw and SmackDown.

POST Wrestling can confirm that the draft is scheduled to take place next month over two episodes.

The draft is tentatively set to begin on Friday, October 11th on SmackDown from Las Vegas, which would be their second week on Fox. The draft would continue the following Monday on Raw from Denver, Colorado on October 14th.

SmackDown will launch on Fox on Friday, October 4th and are promoting the show around the 20th-anniversary of the program with numerous names from the past set to appear.

Since this past April’s Superstar Shakeup, the rosters have not been distinct with the addition of the Wild Card rule this past spring allowing talent to shuffle back-and-forth on both shows.
